Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook

1 Answer

Connect HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop to Panasonic Viera 42'' plasma

I was told to try VGA cable from laptop to TV and additional audio jack to Red/white component on back of TV. The sound works and I am getting my laptop wallpaper to appear on TV, but no further picture. Any ideas how to transmit the picture to TV - do I have the right cables?

    Thanks, I have tried this and got the wallpaper to appear larger & smaller as I alter the resolution. The colour quality is set at highest (32 bit) but I still can only see the wallpaper. I presume that anything appearing on the laptop screen (e.g. this message) should be appearing on the TV.

    Thanks again for your reply. I didn't really understand what you meant by dragging an icon or open window to the TV. However, I seem to have solved it. I right clicked on desktop and chose NVIDIA Display and then changed nView Display Mode to Clone and rather than identifying laptop as monitor 1 and TV as monitor 2, they both appear as 1a and 1b and complete duplicate of laptop screen appears on TV. Many thanks for all your help. I was about to give up thinking this was just not going to work. Away to watch iplayer on TV, thanks!

If you get your wallpaper to show on your TV, then you should be almost there.

  • Try to right-click somewhere in the desktop, choose "Properties" and go to the Settings tab. (Now you should be able to see both monitors.)
  • Click on the "Identify" tab to see which one is your TV.
  • See if "Extend my Windows Desktop onto this monitor" is checked.
  • Try to find a resolution that works with your TV by changing the values for the screen resolution.

    No, not necessarily. If you extend your screen onto the other (TV) screen, you will not see the same things on both screens.
    Try to drag an icon onto the TV screen or open a program and drag that window over to the TV, that should work.
    If not, please leave another comment.

What kind of wire do I need to connect my samsung laptop to panasonic viera hd 3d plasma tv?


Most TVs will have HDMI and RCA component and composite jacks. Some TVs will also have a VGA port. Your laptop will have a VGA port. (If the laptop is fairly new, it may also have an HDMI port.)

Not all TVs will support an HDMI signal from a computer, so the VGA signal is often better. However, that limits you to SD (anything with HDCP will fail.)

Very few TVs ship with the HDMI or component cables. However, there are some vendors who do package the HDMI cable with their TV. Without knowing which exact model of TV and laptop, I can only make a few suggestions. I know that the TCP42ST30 (Plasma 42") doesn't have a VGA port.

Look at your laptop for any external monitor port. VGA ports are generally blue female ports with 15 holes (D-Sub). If your TV has a matching VGA port, get a standard VGA monitor cable.

If you have the VGA port on the laptop but not on the TV, you can try a converting from VGA to HDMI. (You may need a DVI to VGA adapter and either a DVI to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI adapter.) Note: this gives an analog signal (RGB format) to the TV. You'll also need to make sure that your VGA port is active (in the BIOS for some computers) and then set your computer to send the signal to the external monitor. It is best to turn off both the computer and the TV before connecting the two. Then turn on the TV and set it to the correct input before turning on the computer. (In Windows 7, I set the video signal for the external monitor by right clicking on the desktop and selecting Graphics Properties. Set the signal to the external monitor and click Apply. Then click OK (in the external monitor's screen).)

If this doesn't work, you need a VGA to component video converter. (Not a VGA to component video cable - those are for projectors that read the RGB signal.) See http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html .

Some laptops come with an HDMI, mini-HDMI or a DisplayPort option. For the latter two, you will need the appropriate cable with that end and the HDMI connector on the other. Then connect the TV and the computer as described above. (Note: my TVs accept a computer signal at the HDMI port labeled HDMI/DVI. However, you need to make sure that your TV understands this signal. It isn't the same format as that from a set-top box. My laptop has VGA and HDMI out; the desktops have VGA, DVI and HDMI (on one).)

If you add a comment with the model of your TV and laptop, I'll be glad to give you more specific options to connect the TV and the computer.

I hope this helps.

(A DVI port is a digital video out option with ~21 pins and is usually white.)

Does my HP dv9449us has HDMI port? Can I connect it with my tv using this cable or what cables do I need? We have LG LCD tv.


Your laptop does not have a HDMI port. You only have VGA, you have to purchase a VGA to VGA cable VGA is video only interface. So you will need it along with the stereo audio cable
http://pctvcables.com/vga-with-audio-pc-to-tv-cables.html
Note that the stereo audio cable shoulb be connected from the headphones jack on your laptop to the headphones jack on you home theater system if you have one or buy this adapter plug the stereo audio cable coming from the laptop into it and connect it to the stereo audio in (red and white audio)of your tv

Trying to hook up panasonic veira flat screen tv without a manual. Not sure where to put the red, yellow and white cord.


These cable is to connect your tv to other hardware like a dvd player. Just plug the yellow cord on the yellow input in the TV and in the yellow output of the DVD, and the same thing for the other two colors. The yellow it's for the image, and the white/red are for the stereo sound (right and left channels).
If you don't have extra hardware you wont need to connect that cable.

I have a lg plasma and im trying to connect it to my pc hooked up the vga in the comp and on the backside of my tv, have the audio and hooked it up to the audio, but when i change input i can see the pc on...


It sounds like you are using the wrong audio input jack, by chance are you using the audio cable with RED and WHITE RCA to mini stereo plug ?
If you look at the VGA port on the the TV, you will see a small mini phone jack (PC audio) close by, that will be for the sound input when TV is in PC mode.
Please verify for me.

Can i connect my panasonic viera th-42px8ou plasma tv,to my vista desk top? my tv has hdmi on it,my vista tower also says it has 1 hdmi connector on the back of it


You can buy an HDMI to DVI adapter (around 20$) to connect your HDMI computer cable to your TV. You will need separates audios cables, right and left, to bring the sound to the TV.

Got a svga/hdmi cord and hooked up for my panasonic viera plasma to my computer but nothing shows on my component 2. also wondering if i'll need a cord for audio - i have double red/white/yellow...


You probably would need the extra audio cords seeings as normal svga connection won't suppost sound streaming. mixing and matching connections is always a pain to perfect.
If you are using the HDMI end on your plasma, then you will have the video show up on the HDMI channel. Then get an RCA red and white pair - 3.5mm jack and plug the jack into your PC's audio connection port and the RCA's into the Audio In ports in the back of the TV.
Once done the TV should display video and play sound from the PC. Failing this, try a few different configuration but always keep the audio plugged into the same Audio in port on the TV. Bacause then you at least know the channel that the audio works on ;D
Hope this helps mate, any more q's just ask!

Unable to connect to samsung tv as monitor for hp laptop


Hi there
DSUB is VGA, has your TV got a VGA port on the back? if so and you know what the source the channel is then you will need a male to male VGA lead and a mini stereo jack to left and right male phono jacks for the audio, the DSUB or VGA does not carry audio through it.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Connecting my compaq presario 2200 to my panasonic viera 42"


If your computer has a VGA port on the side then it has video out. I've never seen a laptop without one but I guess that does not mean they don't exist :) I'm not sure what model of Viera you have, but the one that comes up on Amazon has a VGA input built in. If yours does then a simple old school monitor cable from a desktop computer will do the trick.

Here is a good one cheap:

If not, you can buy a VGA adapter:
http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10401&cs_id=1040113&p_id=2509&seq=1&format=2




Also, if you want audio to play through the tv/stereo, you will need to get a cable to carry audio as well. This is what you will be needing:
http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021803&p_id=663&seq=1&format=2

and this:

The stuff I linked to are for 25' so you can hide the cables around the room from wherever you would be sitting but you get the idea.

If it gives you hope, I did this with my Fathers compaq laptop to his panasonic 50" plasma and it worked great!

Good luck!
